Abstract Although the concept of “groundedness/autochthony” (Bodenständigkeit) in Heidegger’s writings receives far less scholarly attention than, for example, that of “releasement” (Gelassenheit), a careful examination of the famous “Gelassenheit” speech of 1955 demonstrates that, in fact, Bodenständigkeit is the core concept around which everything else turns. Moreover, in the “Gelassenheit” speech and the writings on Hebel that follow, Heidegger understands Bodenständigkeit to be, fundamentally, something made possible by language in its particularities of tradition and locale. Thus, there is an intriguing continuity of meaning between that concept and the concept as it was used phenomenologically in his writings from the summer 1924 course up to Sein und Zeit.
